Well, when you think you want a loop and before you know it you've
(define (my-func arg1 arg2)
(define (inner var)
it's probably time to come back to a less spartan programming
language. I mean, it's good to know that you *can* write loops that
way, but that doesn't mean it actually *is* a good idea.
